    (12:9.2) Love is the secret of beneficial association between personalities.

    (56:10.21) The advanced mortals on a world in the seventh stage of light and life have learned that love is the greatest thing in the universe--and they know that God is love. Love is the desire to do good to others.

    (100:4.6) Love is only born of thoroughgoing understanding of your neighbor’s motives and sentiments.

    (102:6.3) Love is the essence of religion and the wellspring of superior civilization.****
